System & Performance Management with DECamds
Topic Area:
Track: Open VMS
Topic: Performance & Tuning
Type:  Breakout Session

Schedule:
11/09/99   03:00 PM     Duration: 90 Min.     Room: 1B

Presenter:
Bart Lederman
Software Engineer, Compaq Computer Corporation  

Abstract:
DECamds is a powerful tool for performance troubleshooting, capacity planning and load balancing. It can also be used to correct a number of problems while a system or cluster is running. It can monitor groups of systems (independent systems, clusters or both) and it can be set to scan systems and issue warnings when thresholds have been exceeded or resources are about to be exhausted. Although it has been supplied with OpenVMS for many years, and no longer requires any special license, it apparently is not well known in the user community. This session will show that DECamds is a very useful tool that is easy to learn, yet which can simplify the process of managing systems, investigating performance and correcting some problems on running systems such as 'hung' processes and readjusting cluster quorum. This session will also cover Availability Manager, the follow-on product to DECamds. It monitors VMS nodes like DECamds, but the user interface runs on NT as well as VMS. Over time, all the functionality of the DECamds product will be incorporated into the Availability Manager, and will eventually replace the DECamds product.

Objectives:
Show how DECamds can be used to investigate system performance and locate problem areas
 
Show how DECamds can be used to monitor several systems or clusters, and issue warnings about potential problems; and how it can be customized to the users' site.
 
Show how DEcamds can be used to correct some problems while the system or clusters is running.  

Prerequisites for attendees:
A basic understanding of OpenVMS system management, quotas, accounts, privileges, etc.

Required Skill Level:
Introduction
For those entering a profession/changing technology base
